An open call was sent out early May 2018 asking new and old members of PAB to apply to curator Gitte Sætre challenge to enter Daniel Wurtzel installation 'SHITSTORM' at Kunsthall 3.14, and comment on the elements of the exhibition.
The framework for the performance event in Daniel Wurtzel exhibition "Shitstorm" talks about the human impact on the environment. Environmental challenges are difficult to relate to, but art can make it easier for us to mobilize and act. And the installation in the gallery space at Kunsthall 3.14 gives a human scale to something big and abstract. Artists often create worlds of fiction in order for us to get to know, what we do not yet know.
I wish to embody the voice of a failed masculinity.
I wish to embody the voice of the impotent male.
I wish to embody the voice of the Man who thinks that he can fix everything.
Anja Carr's performance 'Tackle to tentakle' makes us think, about all the things surrounding us. The eternal currents of images and impressions in our lives in the era of technology. It's easy to feel like a small pink sea anemone. Standing completely quiet on the seabed trying to catch everything with its slimy tentacles.
Gillian Carson's performance 'Gestures of the Drowning' is in many ways a reaction to all the social and political information we are surrounded by. An emotional response developed on the basis of her thoughts about humanity's complex reality.
Ninjas of Bergen, one of the many performances the group from the Faculty of Arts, Music and Design has recently performed. Now they are coming to us, we are extremely excited about what they will do this time.
